What is Exmor R Sensor Technology ?

Exmor is the name of a technology Sony rolled out in 2008. The company implemented Exmor R Sensor technology on some of their CMOS image sensors. The tech performs on-chip analogue/digital signal conversion and two-step noise reduction in parallel on each column of the CMOS sensor.

Exmor R is a back-illuminated version of Sony’s CMOS image sensor. Sony claims that Exmor R is approximately twice as sensitive as a normal front illuminated sensor. This active pixel sensor is found in several Sony mobile phones and cameras as well as Apple’s iPhone 4S and 5. The Exmor R sensor allows the camera of the smartphone to capture high definition movies and stills in low lit areas.
